I still owe the bank quite a bit on this one.

Really looking to get an XS instead of the XT (Fuel costs!)

Anybody out there wanting an XT - spent a buck or two on it already and really can't spend more for the short or interim period - no matter how it breaks my heart.

Any interest and I'll load photos and specs.

2005 Forester XT Auto Premium (Black Leather Seats & Sunroof)
189'000 km
Silver

Services up to date, but not a perfect history  (including timing belt)
4 New Yoko Geolanders (-2000km on them) (R10k)
Refurbished Auto Box & Transfer clutches (Warranty till Oct 2018) (R40k)
Walbro 255 lph Fuel Pump
Decatted downpipe
Tuned by Chett Meyer.

Still goes like stink - and with a bit of capex and tlc it'll be perfect.

I would enjoy swopping this out for a manual/auto XS of similar year & milaege - or any suv/van for the space factor.

Having some issues keeping the maintenance and fuel bills under control - even though I bought her as a long term project for pleasure and tinkering - just do not have the time or money for it, and won't for the next few years.

Anybody willing to make a cash offer or negotiate a swop - would help.
Dealerships don't buy these cars (best offer was R40k for the car as is).

Currently I'm trying to source a refurbished power steering pump or a decent enough quote to refurbish/replace.

I'll post some pics - for now it's the one in the background. Rough around the edges with paint and nitty gritty dents - but still drives well and the engine is solid.

Realistically can you expect to really save on fuel costs?

My FIL has the 2.5NA SG pre facelift, i have SG9 XT, we both get exactly the same economy 10L/100 when we both drive like gentlemen
